Hi Sarah,
I own a small jewelry company. I am trying with very little capital to get PR. I have emailed every editor with no luck.

How to Effectively Cost Your Product

As I am speaking to more and more of you budding Entreprenettes, I realize that understanding the true cost on your product(s) is a real problem for everyone as you really just don’t know exactly what to include……and therefore are underselling your products and loosing money and profits.  I want to turn that around for you right now!

Anyone can launch a product and that’s a fact!

Creating products and manufacturing are second nature to me……but for many of you I know it could be a daunting and scary idea.  I want to try to level the playing field a bit for us.  I was where you are over 12 years ago.  I didn’t have a clue (maybe you do) and didn’t want anyone to know about my secret desire to launch this handbag line.  Honestly – I might have thought I was fooling myself too!
